Anatolian Village Kilim
Aintab (present day Gaziantep), South East Anatolia,
Symbols of fertility, symbols of protection and male-female synergy including the Elibelinde all feature in this fantastic village Kilim fragment
The borders, the minor field elements, the colors and the overall arrangement make this a superb piece. [IMO]
Wool with cotton highlights [most probably]
The randomness seen in this artwork is rarely seen in commercial pieces.
Scores very high on the ‘Soul’ element.
It is in a ‘lived heartily & weary’ condition and needs be provided with TLC (tender loving care).
Fortunate that both halves were available!
This is to be viewed as a work of textile art rather than as a floor covering!
Interior decor specialists could redesign this as artful upholstery covers

This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
